Dying... 10/23/2013 2:45:55 PM

Pros: Low price, Western Digital

Cons: It is dying on me.. After not quite a year and only a few months of real world use..

Overall Review: Guess refurbs aren't such a good idea after all. Too bad the warranty is only 3 months.. Oh well..

Refurbed WD-250GB HD 6/29/2013 9:03:02 AM

Pros: Works, a little slow even for an IDE Drive. Good price though and saved me from building a new SATA Desktop.

Cons: Never been a big WD fan, always had trouble with their HD. They "ALL" die within 12 to 18 months, used or new?

Overall Review: Shoul've waited and bought a Seagate, they were on sale a week later....figures.

Junk 6/28/2013 1:40:29 PM

Pros: None

Cons: Failed within 2 minutes of installation. I plugged it in and turned the computer on and within two minutes the hard drive was making banging and clancking noises and the computer couldn't even recognize it as a hard drive.

WD Refurbs = Run Away 2/14/2013 6:50:42 PM

Pros: IDE ATA and Price was only $41

Cons: Died less than 1 year old

Overall Review: I've had a lot of WD Refurbs go bad on me. I was in a pinch and needed it for a logging server thinking it would give me at least a couple years. . . Died after 10 months.

Was DOA 1/30/2013 8:06:53 PM

Pros: Never got it to work

Cons: I guess it was my fault for not testing. I bought it to eventually upgrade my mothers computer. It sat on a shelf for a year and when I went to actually install it, the drive had the clicks of death. Looks like it was DOA.
